Massa Demands UX124 Million From Bloemfontein Celtic

.

Ex-Uganda Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa has taken his former employers Bloemfontein Celtic to court over his outstanding debt of UGX124 million (US$40,000).

Speaking to URN on Tuesday on phone, Massa said the Absa Premier League side should pay up his balance on the sign on fees since they had only paid UGX248 million (US$80,000).

“I signed a contract with them and they have a balance that they did not pay. It is only fair in business that they fulfill their side,” he added. Massa said his lawyers in South Africa are handling the matter that should be resolved soon.

After leading Uganda Cranes to the Africa Cup of Nations after 39-years of waiting, Massa retired two weeks ago. Massa whose contract was terminated by struggling Absa Premier League side Baroka FC explained that he decided to hand the matter to his lawyers in South Africa because Celtic was acting funny.

“I have sent them so many reminders and even called them, but they have always acted like they do not know what I am talking about,” explained Massa who is now club-less.

Massa switched last year leaving Celtic for newly promoted Baroka FC.He had previously played for the University of Pretoria and other clubs in Cyprus, Egypt and Police FC in Uganda.
Goalkeeper Denis Onyango is the only Ugandan player featuring in the South African League. Yasser Mugerwa, Hamis Kizza and Ivan Bukenya all left their South African based clubs last season.
